Nathan/ Largo

VIP nathan 2b

It’s been a week since I was rescued from a terrible place and wow do I like being in a house, having lots of toys and a yard.  I’m a little timid at first but I warm up with some gentle hands and time. I’m approximately 9 lbs and they vet said maybe 4-6 but I play like I’m 3-4.  I will run and fetch a toy as often as you want to throw it. I’m housebroken now, good with other dogs, I am a little bit of a toy hog though. I’m neutered, had all my shots, had a dental, micro chipped. I’m heart worm negative and on prevention.  I may be a doxie mix of some kind, not sure, but I am cute as can be. My coat is starting to come back since I had to be shaved down to skin, I was in pretty bad shape. I have a silver coat with some splashes of black and long beautiful eyelashes coming in.  I follow my foster Mom everywhere and I’ve warmed up to my foster dad. I just want to be loved forever, now that I know what it feels like.  If you want to love me forever please go to and apply for Nathan!  Hope to meet you soon.

Pluto is a vivacious young 3 yr old thought to be Standard Poodle.  He is small for a Standard, about 44 lbs., a handsome platinum silver.  He loves people, has loads of energy, and needs a minimum of a 6 foot “privacy fence” and lots of yard to run and play at his new home.  (no exceptions.)   While he is an inside dog, his energy abounds.  He has been through extensive training, knows basic obedience, and walks well on a leash…..until there are other dogs or distractions and then he can be full on jump and play and chase mode.  He loves affection, you can hold him like a baby, and his antics are quite entertaining.  He needs an experienced owner that can manage his high energy with lots of leash free exercise in a safe place, a jogging and exercising buddy would be ideal too.   As far as other dogs, he is very high energy – will run and play non-stop with them – and he does not have a mean bone in his body.   He is all smiles, a very happy delightful boy, and you can’t help but fall in love with him.  He will literally melt your heart!  Pluto is crated when he is left alone.  He is also crated when he eats as he does not like other dogs or people bothering him while eating.  He loves riding on a golf cart and going for rides in the car.

We recommend his new owner continue with training socializing him with with distractions.  He would likely be a good candidate for agility and other sports.  He is not a service dog candidate or an emotional support dog candidate.  He requires frequent brushing, and monthly grooming.  He is a little wild on the groom table but will do fine with an experienced groomer.  His family relinquished him to rescue as he was not a candidate for a special needs child / farm animal environment.  However, they did work with him extensively and he has been thru Board and Train.  He is not a candidate for a home with young children, no farm animals, and no cats.  He has a high prey drive and he will chase and he will counter surf.  You need to help him channel all his energy into something positive he loves such as agility, barn hunt, or other dog sports he can engage in.  He likes to learn new things!

He is house trained, crate trained, and looking for a home where you are home most of the days/evenings.  He will not do well in a home that crates 4-6-8-10 hours a day.

Pluto is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heart worm negative, and microchipped.  He appears to be in perfect health.  We adopt to Florida residents only.  A home visit is a pre-requisite to be approved for adoption.

Pluto’s adoption donation is $450.

Hi my name is Christy and I’m a 7-8 year old (not so mini) minpin. I like treats and it shows, although my foster dads are not giving in to my cuteness. I am spayed and up to date on my shots. My family moved and couldn’t take me so I’m learning new things with my new family. I enjoy walking on my leash and do well. I am working on my house training and I’m sometimes good on my pee pads and sometimes oops. I like sitting next to my humans on the couch and just chilling. I get along well with my sister dogs and don’t seem to have any interest in the cats. If you would like to adopt me and help me get fit you can apply through

Bach is thought to be a 9 year old 12 lb poodle.He is current on his shots , micro chipped, neutered and  on heartworm prevention
Bach was very sick when he came to us. He had an infection in his liver as well as heartworms. both have been taken care of. We feel he was mistreated, he doesn’t like loud noises or yelling. He is very timid but warms up with love and kindness. he loves to cuddle when you are laying down. He needs to be in a one dog family with an experienced owner. He is potty trained and loves to run in the fenced yard.
We are guessing he’s about 9 years old. He needs you to help him become the sweet, loving dog he can be. Send in your application for this diamond in the rough.

Mambo/Myakka City


Mambo is a goof ball. That said he will follow you anywhere, he wants to be near you all the time. He had the worst ear infection we had ever seen. They did remove his right ear but he was finally pain free. He is deaf. but it does not hold him back. He is potty trained as long as he gets out often. He is good on a leash and rides well in the car. He loves people and gets along with other dogs and cats. We think he is about 9 years old with a touch of arthritis. His favorite time of day is breakfast and dinner  and nap time. he dogs play with his toys. If you are looking for a quite loving companion, here he is.

If clown was a breed , there would be no need to describe Mambo’s personality . But since it is not , his sparkling personality prevails ! He is goofy  and fun ! Simply a delight to be around. He is thought to be 9 years young and 23 lbs of love . He is current on his shots, micro chipped, neutered, had a dental and on heartworm prevention.Before his arrival to rescue life, was not kind to Mambo. Neglect of a major ear infection ,left him with having to have the ear removed . Has not changed his personality ! He does have some hearing loss, He has a little dry eye and a touch of arthritis. Mambo is an inspiring companion pet , simply full of fun , after what life dealt him. He is super friendly , good with other dogs , good on a leash too !

Just look at that face , big brown eyes , and a smile for all .  He is waiting to meet you , so submit your application !

vip solara 2 14 e vip solara 2 14 d vip solara  2 14 c

Solara, or “Solli”, as we call her, is a Super smart little dog!

She’s been through about 8 weeks of training and is picking up almost all without a hitch. She is still working on some things.

She is very fearful of people.

She gets along with other dogs just fine and cats too. She just takes some time getting used to new people.

But she is totally capable.  Friends that come, have seen her go from Mad dog…to Angel Dog…with just a little time, patience and treats….lol

This girl loves food and it’s a great motivator in her training. But she’s been known to steal food off plates if not watched carefully…LOL!!

vip solara bvip solara d vip solara c

“Solli” needs a home with a lot of patience and an owner that is willing to work with her to find her trust of people.

Solara is a darling  member of the ”What is that breed club?”  She is most likely terrier /long hair chi.

She is a tiny 8 lbs 7 year old.

She is current on her shots, micro chipped, spayed, had a dental, and is on flea and heartworm prevention .

 She has a sweet personality , but reacts fearfully to new people, especially men.  

She loves to hang out with you on the couch or whatever room you’re in..

Once she has your trust, she is an Excellent companion.

She is waiting for your application, so you can meet her!

Jolly 1
Jolly is approximately 10-12 years old.  He completely blind but finds his crate after eating and walking around a little.  He sleeps ALOT, but does like to be in your lap. He is up to date on shots, microchipped, neutered and has had dental, at which time he lost most of his teeth.    I’m so grateful that VIP Rescue saw past my age, my blindness and gave me a chance to know that human touch feels good, a dry warm bed is so nice to sleep in and food every day twice a day. My past was really horrific. Earn your badge of honor by adopting a Senior dog.  Sure no one knows how much time I have left, but just a chance to be loved and safe is all I ask for.  There are several seniors on our site, so if I’m not your forever senior please go to and check us out.  The best love, is the love of a senior dog.

To welcome Jolly to your heart and home please submit your application !

Thanks to Karen at the Mutt Hut for the fresh groom !

Eliza/Myakka City




Eliza Doolittle has lived up to her name. This beautiful girl now barks at visitors at the door, tries to play with other dogs and just wants to be a member of a family who will love her and whom she can love with all of her big heart. She still needs to put on weight, but what lady doesn’t like to hear the words “Time for a treat”?’ Her medical notes say she’s a roughly 12-year-old, apricot, miniature poodle who needs a dental and a spay and who has a heart murmur. What they don’t say is that she’s beautiful, she’s feisty, she loves to walk, be petted and sit on laps, she travels well in a car and  is quiet when she needs to be, yet playful when she’s encouraged. And the biggest and best thing they don’t say: She’s as sweet as she is beautiful – maybe even sweeter. She is current on her shots , micro chipped, heartworm negative, and spayed.
